As I'm sitting here enjoying my cottage cheese straight from the tub I was wondering what "gross" foods others eat?
My husband gives me a hard time about my cottage cheese addiction, he says it just rotten milk, but I say it's good rotten milk!!!
When I was pregnant I ate a 16oz tub a day!!!
I love the stuff; I also love brussel sprouts, liver and onions and pickle juice!
I know they arenât gross, but they are foods that have a bad rep.
So anyone out there eat anything that is considered gross by others?

I love to dip french fries into vanilla soft-serve (McD's is the best). The creamy-sweet/salty combo is amazing (at least I think so.. LOL icon_razz.gif)

And yes ALL of my friends think I'm strange. My boyfriend in particular thinks its gross...but he'll still take me out every once in a while when the craving strikes icon_lol.gif

I also like part-skim ricotta straight out of the tub. I only eat it when I've bought it especially for a recipe and have some left over, though. thumbs_up.gif

I love dipping my Wendy's fries in my Frosty, I've never tried it at McDonalds, I'll have to do that!

my daughter will try to drink ketchup. She even makes ketchup sandwiches. GAG!

I use to only eat cottage cheese with potato chips. Love collard greens with a little bit of bacon greese
I like pickle juice too. I put cereal and wheat germ on top of ice cream.
My family says I'm odd because of what I don't like to eat. I don't like Oreos, pancakes, waffles, syrup, jelly, jello and turkey. Can't stand the stuff. My kids and DH like it though.

I'm a pretty picky eater and pretty much dislike all vegetables. But, I do enjoy artichokes. Pretty odd food. I like to dip the leaves in mayo.

Our entire family likes artichokes. We try to have 1 new food a eek at dinner so the boys try a variety of things, and my oldest chose artichokes one week. We usually dip in butter and lemon juice though, not mayo!

I like smoked oysters from the can..I couldn't get enough of these when I was pregnant with my daughter!!

I love LOVE grits, either with butter (lots) or garlic and cheddar cheese. Mr husband and friends theink it's gross, but you call that stuff polenta and they think it's delish. icon_confused.gif

Nutella is another favorite of mine, on a spoon straight from the container.

I also love turnip greens cooked with bacon.

My husband eats grits, but he puts sugar and pepper on his?!
I love turnip greens, and I love canned artichokes, the fresh ones to me have no flavor, but maybe I'm just cooking them wrong.
But the garlic marinated ones from a can/jar are amazing.

Edited to add: I only eat the fat off of bacon, thats my favorite part!

The first one that comes to my mind is Vienna Sausages. I like to drain the liquid and replace it with white vinegar then eat them strait from the can. My oldest daughter calls them "veenie weenies". She thinks they're gross though.

I used to dip American slice cheese into ketchup. Does that count?

I just thought of another one, pickled eggs!!! You know the kind you make when you soak boiled eggs in beet juice for a few days until they turn red!

I love raw steak, pickled asparagus and snails (escargot). I also love cottage cheese, but I put milk and sugar in mine.

When I was pregnant with my first, I couldn't get enough Kraft mac n cheese with green olives. Normally I hate Kraft!

I love well done spam, canned icing, and boiled eggs that have been peeled and soaked in a jar of dill pickle juice. Can't forget about fried pork rinds, mmmm that is some good traveling food right there!!
Egg yolks sprinkled with Red Hot hot sauce. lord-dee!!!

Well, this might not fall in the category of "gross", but I put straight up hot sauce or hot pepper flakes on just about everything. I dunk my french fries in tabasco. I put red pepper flakes in my (just mine!) soup. Hot-hot-hot! Love it! ... Yet, I can honestly say I don't know how my stomach handles it, but it does just fine! I also like cold leftovers! Yummmmy!!! icon_razz.gif Oh! And my mom still to this day will bring up how grossed out she was when I lived home and put garlic pepper on my eggs for breakfast!!! icon_biggrin.gif

Looks like some of you could survive with me on an island, because I "second" some of your comments. My husband and others do consider some of my delicacies gross...but it looks like I might be amongst kindred spirits here!

1. I love vienna sausage sandwiches - white bread, Miracle Whip, and vienna sausages sliced down the middle. Mmmm...

2. I love cabbage smothered with onions and bacon.

3. I love baked bean sandwiches. White bread with margarine spread on it. Beans on top folded over. By the way, do any of you call a folded over sandwich a "cowboy"? I heard this for the first time recently. I was told it's because when you fold over a piece of bread it resembles the bowed legs of a cowboy.

4. Love a medium-rare rib eye, lots of red "juice".

5. Marinated artichoke hearts in a salad or on a pizza.

6. Pickled beets.

Being of Cajun-French descent and living in Cajun Country, here are my favorite Cajun delicacies, that others may consider gross:

1. Boiled, fried, or stewed crawfish.
2. Hog head cheese
3. Boudin (a "sausage" of sorts that is made from pork and rice)
4. Cracklins

And I wonder why I'm overweight!!!! icon_lol.gif

The weirdest thing i eat is mac and cheese with gravy,mmmm or ramen noodles with barbecue sauce or chili. Its mostly the stuff i don't eat that makes ppl think im weird. I dont eat ketchup, or eggs(excepted boiled in potato salad) I dont eat peanut butter (im not allergic, just dont like it) I don't eat any kind of seafood, which makes me pretty weird in south Louisiana, people always"where are you from??" I do like dunking my McD's fries in vanilla ice cream though or plain potato chips into chocolate pudding..YUmmy!!

After reading my thread it sounded like I like eggs and frosting and all in one fell swoop. he heeee. I also love love boiled p-nuts. mmmm, salty!

Cold fried catfish, cold fried chicken, cold fried potatoes and cold white bean sandwiches. Gosh, I think I like most foods cold. My husband will not touch raw cookie dough or cake batter. He never licked the beaters and bowl as a kid and thinks he'll get food poisoning if he does. Sometimes I'll make a batch of cookies and never get around to baking them but end up eating all the dough. YUM!

Oh, and everyone thinks this is gross-uncooked cornbread dressing. Whoever makes the dressing for Thanksgiving and Christmas knows to save me a little bowl of it.

If you love cottage cheese.....try a cottage cheese sandwich!!! To make it extra special, throw a slice of tomato on it. Yummy! I also like chocolate cake with evaporated milk poured over the top. icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

The strangest thing I've ever seen was when my FIL had mashed potatoes & beef gravy then he poured ketchup over the top. icon_confused.gificon_confused.gificon_confused.gif

I used to eat cheese mustard and potato chip sandwiches, but haven't had one in a long time. Every now and then I get a craving for one and indulge. My 8 year old son loves mayo and bleu cheese sandsiches.

Ham salad sandwiches on white bread! I know, it must be the worst thing in the world for you, but I love it.

OMG fried pickles are sooooo good. Love them! Plenty of restaurants in GA serve them as an appetizer.

I think the recipe is on southernliving.com

What exactly does it taste like? I'm curious...my family always crack on me because they say i'm not afraid to try different foods. I found a few recipes for the fried pickles. Have anyone ever made dill pickle potato chips??
